Nonconvex Optimal Control and Variational Problems by Alexander J. Zaslavski

By Alexander J. Zaslavski

Nonconvex optimum regulate and Variational difficulties is a massive contribution to the present literature within the box and is dedicated to the presentation of growth made within the final 15 years of analysis within the zone of optimum keep an eye on and the calculus of adaptations. This quantity encompasses a variety of effects referring to well-posedness of optimum regulate and variational difficulties, nonoccurrence of the Lavrentiev phenomenon for optimum keep an eye on and variational difficulties, and turnpike homes of approximate options of variational problems.

Chapter 1 comprises an creation in addition to examples of pick out subject matters. Chapters 2-5 ponder the well-posedness situation utilizing nice instruments of common topology and porosity. Chapters 6-8 are dedicated to the nonoccurrence of the Lavrentiev phenomenon and include unique effects. bankruptcy nine makes a speciality of infinite-dimensional linear keep watch over difficulties, and bankruptcy 10 bargains with “good” capabilities and explores new understandings at the questions of optimality and variational difficulties. eventually, Chapters 11-12 are established round the turnpike estate, a selected specialty for the author.

This quantity is meant for mathematicians, engineers, and scientists attracted to the calculus of adaptations, optimum keep an eye on, optimization, and utilized sensible research, in addition to either undergraduate and graduate scholars focusing on these components. The textual content dedicated to Turnpike homes could be of specific curiosity to the economics community.
